Arrival and departure were a breeze in spite of large number of passengers. Our Grand Suite was delightful, large, with plenty of storage. The spacious bathroom had two sinks, tub with handheld shower, and a generous supply of towels. ... Read more

We wanted to try out a large ship,and Harmony of the Seas did not disappoint. It was not too hard to figure out the ship layout. I was hoping to buy my two carry on bottles of wine at the dock. But there was not anywhere to purchase as ... Read more

My wife and I thought the shows in the theater were not timed particularly well. The first show always seemed to conflict with sunsets. Yes, I know I could choose to see sunset and hit the second showing. The finish of the first shows ... Read more

Embarkation turned into a disorganised chaos when the gangway started moving. The cabin was a good size but why no mini fridge or bathroom requisites. We knew from experience that the water in the cabin would cost more than a pint of ... Read more

I have never cruised before and feel motion sick on a lawn swing! My husband spent 27 years in the Navy and wanted to see how it felt not to work at sea. The 4 day raise was enough to to let me determine if I could enjoy a longer trip. We ... Read more

My wife and I have been cruising since 1992 so we have a wide experience. I would probably put this in the lower end of ships we have been on. First the good: the staff was very friendly and eager to help. The restaurant food was ... Read more

Friends invited us to join them on this cruise and we're glad we decided to go. The whole experience was great from beginning to end. I was amazed by how they were able to bring so many people and their luggage on board so quickly. Dining ... Read more

This was my 94th cruise. It happened to be at a time when my son was not teaching school, so we could join him, and we had not been on Quantum class before. I was pleased with the ship. In fact we did not get off at any of the ... Read more

We had a nice time on this voyage; no big WOW factor, other than the price we paid. We got a very good deal in my opinion averaging around $60/day per person.,This being a smaller ship though, doesn't really allow itself for WOW factors. ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see the Suez Canal. The ship is 20 years old and was on its last Royal Caribbean cruise. The ship seemed dated, crowded, and run down. We had 2 days in Dubai before we boarded, and 2 days in Barcelona when we ... Read more
